Cruising or Racing
For racing ...
Club racing is organized for six main classes: Mirrors, Fireflies, Enterprises, Swordfish, Streaker and Ospreys; also for a handicap dinghy fleet. The racing programme is divided into three points series - spring, summer and autumn - interspersed with several special events such as cup races and open meetings. Racing takes place on Sunday afternoons throughout the season and Wednesday evening and Sunday mornings during the summer months.
... or just sailing for pleasure
Although much of its activities revolve around racing, the club equally welcomes those who do not wish to compete but simply enjoy sailing for pleasure. New junior members are particularly encouraged, with the more experienced sailors always keen to offer help and guidance. The club has two main social functions each year - a fitting out supper in April and the prize giving dinner in November. Several informal functions are also held during the winter months.
or newcomers to the sport....
Sailing is a safe and relatively inexpensive sport. Newcomers can choose boats and equipment that matches their budget, usually starting with a second hand boat.
... and newcomers to the club
If you would like more information or to arrange membership, please come along to the Mere during the season or contact our club secretary - we will be very pleased to have you aboard and we will give you all the help and support we can!
Even though our lake is the largest in Yorkshire, we regret that for safety reasons catamarans and ultra high performance asymmetric's (laser 5000's, 49ers etc.), are not permitted.
Day sailing is also available when the Club safety boat is set up.
